A. M. Burrage
Alfred McLelland Burrage (1889 – 1956) was a British writer.
He was noted in his time as an author of fiction for boys which he published under the pseudonym Frank Lelland, including a popular series called "Tufty".
He served in the First World War and published a memoir of his experiences, War Is War, as "Ex-Private X".
Burrage is now remembered mainly for his horror fiction, which was originally collected in the books Some Ghost Stories (1927) and Someone in the Room (1931, as by "Ex-Private X") and has been reprinted by Ash-Tree Press.
